Wow, I had no idea that the Blackadder guy was also the Four Weddings and a Funeral guy was also the Vicar of Dibley guy!

The new outfit sounds kind of spooky, eh? I'm on board with tweed jacket and bow-tie, but the rest of it is very hard to picture... I guess I'm just going to have to trust them on this.

Then again, I dunno that I'm even ready for a new Doctor.

I think it took me a long time to wrap my head around that--especially because I saw all of those things at very different points in my life. I think I half-thought there were just several writers named Richard Curtis working in British TV and film!

I'm not 100% sold on the new outfit, either, though some of that is probably because aside from the boots, he's pretty much dressed like one of my high-school history teachers. I do like the "old man in a young body" angle, though. Still, I'm not really ready for a new Doctor, either. Perversely, I think the gap year is making me less ready: I feel like Ten still has so many issues, and there's no way Russell can resolve them in three more episodes.

Speaking of Russells, at least there is a new Russell Tovey episode for me to look forward to...

Ooh, that is exciting! He was definitely one of the things I liked about "Voyage of the Damned." (See also: Ten in a tux.)

Embarrassing, but: I may have seen Voyage of the Damned more often than any other New Who episode (it just keeps coming on! give it a rest BBC America!), but I did not remember Russell Tovey. Not without some serious brain nudgery when I realized he'd been in it.

I remembered the Allons-y, Alonso part. But I did not remember Alonso.

Sorry, future husband.

I'm sure he'll forgive you. :) I mean, I knew who he was going into the episode, because of The History Boys, so I spent all his moments onscreen going "yay!" a lot. But it's not as meaty a part as, say, John Chivery. So it's possible to have overlooked him, I think.

I somehow managed to convince myself that I had never seen Christopher Eccleston in anything before Doctor Who, even though he is in practically every other scene of the film Elizabeth. Which I had seen at least three times by the time I started watching Doctor Who. Oops.
